The ill-health of Jolly Nyame, a former Taraba State Governor, on Monday stalled his trial before Justice Adebukola Banjoko of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Gudu, for an alleged N1.64 billion fraud.

Counsel to Nyame, H.T. Fajimite, told the court that his client suddenly took ill, and needed to attend to his health, which caused his absence in court for the “continuation of his defence”.

“We regret to inform the court that this morning, we got a phone call from one ‘Mr. William’, one of the aides of the defendant, informing us that he developed health issues over the night and had to see a doctor,” he said, requesting for an adjournment.

Counsel for the prosecution, Rotimi Jacobs SAN did not oppose the application for an adjournment.

Justice Banjoko, thereafter, adjourned to September 20, 2017 for Nyame to continue his defence.
